GayCities Members report that Embassy Suites Center City has closed
Comfortable downtown lodging
Though it might be a bit far from the bars in Washington Square West, the downtown Embassy Suites City Center is great if you're looking for all the amenities of a mainstream hotel. Walking distance to the museum and great restaurants.

      Excellent value
      I loved this hotel -- a better quality than I'm used to getting from online travel sites. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful (although the woman who checked me in misinformed me that local calls were free -- fortunately, I checked again before I made any!). The suite was spectacular. I've been in hotel suites before, but the entry hall/living room is spacious, with broad lines, and beautifully furnished (sectional coach, vaguely modern coffee table, wooden dining table/desk with a strip of outlets, plenty of lamps). The Pullman kitchen is equipped with a mini-fridge, microwave, sink (of course), napkins, and coffeemaker with pods, though no utensils or pans. The queen-size (I think) bed is firm and supremely comfortable. The bathroom is a bathroom, but looks good. The supplied breakfast includes a full hot and cold buffet, plus an omelet chef. A very nice amenity is the daily cocktail hour for hotel guests (who get a pass) in the lobby: a free drink, plus all manner of munchies: pretzels, chips and salsa, sometimes cookies, sometimes pita and hummus -- you get the idea. The location is excellent, at the edge of the financial district as well as on the museum road. City Hall, Market East, and Midtown Village are all a short walk. Here are the small quibbles -- and they _are_ mostly small: --The good news is that there's free in-room Wi-Fi (which contradicts the website). The less good news is that it tends to be spotty -- my tablet kept notifying me it was reconnecting. It's mostly serviceable for simple tasks like e-mail, but rarely consistent enough for video or audio. --The way the breakfast is organized, you can't get back in later in the morning to get an extra cup of coffee or two, (Mind, I still like this breakfast better than most others I've had.) --There's no coat closet in the entry area, if you care about that sort of thing -- I don't. All told, I'd gladly stay here again at a comparable rate.
